Ok so I'm still new to well... everything related to home brewing and ive made some mead's, and a few beers with liquid extracts and yes it is very simple but that doesn't mean i understand it all. Any way that's a little insight on me, so now i want to try to make some makgeolli.
I'm having a lot of trouble finding the yeast for it since it is made from rice. I found that it need something called Nuruk, or Jiu-Bing (they look like jawbreaker candy's) and a little bit of baking yeast is what the recipe calls for. Now I heard or saw some where that it is just malted wheat, but on this bottle i bought it says 90% rice 10% millet. So could I just grind up some millet or some malted wheat or maybe both. I would prefer to just use one. Also I saw some stuff in the store that said glutinous rice flour and could i throw that in the mix maybe i don't really know I'm just thinking out loud here.
So to sum it all up my questions are: Does anyone have a link to a site where i can buy so Jiu-Bing balls, or some Nuruk. Would malted wheat, or millet, or glutenous rice flour work as a good substitute for Nuruk or Jiu-Bing
<--- I like that smile a lot as you can see
